Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Expecting Their Second Child
The couple released a photo taken by their friend, wherein Markle is seen showing signs of pregnancy.
Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child, a spokesman said in a Valentine's Day announcement.
The couple released a black-and-white photo of them under a tree, wherein Markle is seen showing signs of pregnancy.
The spokesperson said in a statement, "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child."
A Buckingham Palace spokesman added: "Her Majesty, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and the entire family are delighted and wish them well."
Misan Harriman, a friend of Harry and Meghan who took the photograph, wrote on Twitter: "Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story begin, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow."
The news comes after Meghan Markle opened up about her miscarriage last year. In a heartfelt piece for The New York Times, Markle spoke about dealing with unbearable grief and the need for kindness and empathy.
Recalling the fateful day, Meghan Markle wrote, "It was a July morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table... After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.... I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second".
Meghan and Harry, who is Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, quit frontline royal duties in March last year and now live in California.
